Getting Ready for Christmas!

I got out all the ornaments for mom!

On our FAKE tree, we put all t he little fun ornaments we've collected for years! Every year we have 2 trees. We will be getting a real tree too, which will hold all our fancy glass ornaments.

Here are our collection ornaments.

Hmmm... i wonder which one i should pick first?
(and just so you know, that was MOM under the tree, not sister!)

Here is our tree. Sister grew up with this tree. You put the pieces together by color code.
The star, is very special to all of our hearts. There aren't many like it. Mom got this star when she was a little kid. Her mom and dad got it, and we've never seen another family with one like it since she was a kid.

Also, with our fake tree, we overload all of the ornaments.
its just tradition! notice there are some on the bottom too, sister put them there so i can see them too. :)

Also, as tradition goes, EVERYONE in the family has to put on one ornament. So that means brother has to stop playing his video games for 3 minutes and come hang one too.

He always hangs this ornament: the gingerbread man, my boy's name is written on the hat, and the man is made from crushed walnuts!

Mom hung this one. We have 4 like this. Its very pretty.

Sister gave this one to dad to hang up.
Sister and mom are the ones who really decorate.

Sister gave dad this one too.

This is one that the boy made when he was really really little.

This ornament sister hung up, and my grandma's friend made this one special for us.

this one was also made by grams friend.

This one was made by Sister when she was just a little kid.

This is sister's favorite ornament. Oliver. He used to sing music if you squeezed him, but now he just makes a low spitting sound.

This is a fluffy white teddy bear sister had gram hang.

More to come tomorrow!

-love, isis

Isis, your tree is beautiful and so full of wonderful family traditions. Our tree gets a special top, too. It is a muslin stuffed angel that mom made when she and dad first were married...but it has only one wing! Mom says this is just to remind us that even if we are not perfect we can still make it to the top! Your place looks so festive...I cannot wait to see more.
